Two lawsuits have been filed in Chile against three current or former Israeli Supreme Court justices for endorsing the construction of the West Bank separation barrier and the seizure of goods from Palestinians. Chile's Palestinian Federation filed a war-crimes suit Monday against current justices Uzi Vogelman and Neal Hendel and retired justice Asher Grunis, who was president of the court in 2012-15 . The group argues that Chile's international agreements allow for suits involving crimes against humanity committed in other countries.A Chilean-Palestinian woman who owns land in the Cremisan Valley, which is near Bethlehem, filed a separate suit against the justices.The lawyer representing her in the case, Nicolas Pavez, said the plaintiffs decided to sue in Chile after exhausting all avenues in Israel over the past eight years, leading to the Israel top court ruling on the legality of the barrier.
